It didn’t take long after the Golden State Warriors beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference finals for various sports books to dub the Warriors the significant title favorites over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. According to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Golden State is a 5.5-point favorite to win Thursday’s Game 1 (9 p.m. ET, ABC) and approximately a 2-to-1 favorite to capture the championship.
The odds mean little to LeBron James, however. “Not my concern,” James said Tuesday, speaking to the media for the first time since the Cavs’ Finals rematch with Golden State was set.
